A Minor Prophet Story - Nahum and the NinevitesISBN: 9781527109476
The book of Nahum in illustrated storybook form for 4-6 year-olds
God is good, a strong refuge in times of trouble; He cares for those who trust in Him. But He will sweep away His enemies like a mighty flood and drive them into darkness. In the book of Nahum, God promises to punish the Assyrians, who had been oppressing Israel. Their capital, Nineveh, was full of murder and lies, so God destroys it.
Nahum's name means comfort. God's people can find comfort in his prophecy, which shows how God will defeat all our enemies. He even sent His Son, Jesus, to defeat sin, death and the devil. Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
Nahum is a minor prophet, but his book teaches major lessons. Brian Wright and John Brown show how we can learn about the power and mercy of God in this illustrated rendering of the prophecy of Nahum for 4-6 year-olds.
